Gossamir Winds


Over the tops of trees it can bring
A cooling relief from a hot summer's sting.

Or a vessel that sails like the falcon and crow
Or a transporter of life to which poppies will grow.

It can ease the weary with diaphonous clouds
And chill the marrow in vaporous shrouds.

It can accompany the rain with drops
As countless as stones in the sea.

But it can never return the feeling of want
The want that you've taken from me.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
